On a hazy spring day last year, amateur photographer
Glick said he was driving through Fort Snelling National
Cemetery. It was by chance that he saw a huge eagle
perched on a tombstone.
The eagle had landed on the grave of a United
States serviceman, Sgt. Maurice Ruch.
Today, June 20th, is American Eagle Day.
Congress has resolved to
recognize 'American Eagle Day' every 20th of June and it has so
far been proclaimed in 41 states.
